A major challenge to society and to future chemical engineers is how to produce and use energy in ways that are sustainable, economical and environmentally friendly.
This pathway allows Chemical Engineering students to build on the core material covered in the first three years by taking specialist units related to energy in the 4 th and final year. In particular they will take units on Energy Systems, Wastewater Engineering Technology and Utility Systems in Semester 1. In Semester 2 they will be able to choose between Distributed and Renewable Energy Systems and the Nuclear Fuel Cycle. They will graduate both with a solid background in core Chemical Engineering and with additional expertise in a topic of major significance in the 21 st century.
